A couple of days ago, the sun was shining on the Lily Pond in Mill Creek Park, Youngstown, Ohio (USA) so brightly that the water looked like liquid gold. Not sure what it looked like from a good-eye view, though! Except for a titch of sharpening that I do to all photos I post online, this is straight out of the point-and-shoot Kodak Easyshare Z5120 camera.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.
